“Welcome to NASCAR heaven”
Charlotte Motor Speedway is a motorsports complex located in Concord, North Carolina, United States 13 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina. The complex features a 1.5 miles (2.4 km) quad oval track that hosts NASCAR racing including the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend and the Sprint All-Star Race, as well as the Bank of America 500. The speedway was built in 1959 by Bruton Smith and is considered the home track for NASCAR with many race teams located in the Charlotte area. The track is owned and operated by Speedway Motorsports (SMI) with Marcus G. Smith (son of Bruton Smith) as track president. The 2,000 acres (810 ha) complex also features a state-of-the-art quarter mile (0.40 km) drag racing strip, ZMAX Dragway. It is the only all-concrete, four-lane drag strip in the United States and hosts NHRA events. Alongside the drag strip is a state-of-the-art clay oval that hosts dirt racing including the World of Outlaws finals.
The "Feel and Thrill" tour was awesome. It includes the tour at the infield track, drag track, and dirt track.The tour guide was enthusiastic and friendly. She really loves racing and talked about the speedway. It made the tour more fun and interesting. There's a huge gift shop with cool NASCAR and motor sport items which are pricey. The people we met here were all nice and friendly.
With the Over The Wall Tour, you have the opportunity to dine at the prestigious restaurant, The Speedway Club. This refined and elegant dining option holds a unique place both in North Carolina’s racing legacy and in the world of private clubs. The food is divine, but the draw is definitely the view overlooking the speedway, directly in front of the pit area. FANTASTIC!
Another expensive cookie cutter track with no action
